    I was at work today and a coworker came up to me. I bearly know him. But his wife had dided 6months ago from a strock. I said I was very sorry about his wife. He told me His wife was a quilter for a long time and she made beautiful quilts.And that he loved to watch her quilt.He told me that She could put out a quilt a week. He said that he was watching me at my breaks working on my quilts and he tought that I have a love for quilting that his wife had. He told me he has all her quilting things and a very large stach. he said no one whanted it and he wanted to give it to someone who will enjoy it as much as she did. He said he is going to give it to me as so as he can clean up abit. What could I say but yes. It will come in handy because I just lost my over time and can not buy anything rigth now;and I need new things. I"m low.

    How nice, for both you and him. I know how important it is to have a loved one's things loved after they are gone. Perhaps if you find something partially done in what he brings to you, you could complete it and give it to him as a token of your appreciation.

    Now that is a man who knew his wife well. Congrats on the new additions to your stash! I liked nor'easter's idea too.
